St. John’s Riverside Hospital is pleased to announce that our Community Breast Health Program has been awarded a grant from the Avon Foundation for Women in the amount of $50,000.
Avon funding is essential in achieving our mission of providing quality breast care for patients who seek comprehensive cancer services at St. John’s. Funds will broaden our reach to those that are challenged with access to breast screening and follow-up care and also assist our health professionals that provide cancer education, screening coordination, treatment, support services and patient navigation.
In 2014, the St. John’s Cancer Program and Breast Center of Excellence at Dobbs Ferry will enhance breast care plans for the newly diagnosed and patient-centered chemotherapy treatment follow-up, to facilitate better patient understanding, decision making and compliance with care regimens.
Congratulations to the staff, volunteers, and community partners for your commitment to providing the care that our patients deserve. We will continue to take part in the many benefits Avon has to offer in building our knowledge base and making valuable connections to advance cancer care at St. John’s Riverside Hospital.
